"Why did my life have to be like this," I grumbled to no-one in particular.
I looked into the mirror searching for any flaws in my appearance.
Well, the only one I actually paid attention to was my big 'billboard brow'.
I sighed, some things may never change.
I hurried down the stairs after I grabbed my kunai pouch.
I stopped in my tracks, my mom was crying.
I hurried as fast as I could tripping some times.
This was serious.
My mom hasn't cried like that since Samantha's death.
One key word occured to me.
My teal green eyes widened.
"M-mom?" I asked my voice shaking.
"Oh! Sakura! I didn't realize you were up so early." My mom said cheerfully.
'She was hiding something.' I thought to myself.
Mom knows I always leave the house exactly 3 hours earlier so I can improve my skills.
"Mother what's wrong?"I questioned. I walked to her and put my hand on her shoulder.
She was a bit shorter than me so I leaned down and stared her straight in the eye.
"Your Father's gone honey. He's d-d-dead. He was killed in his latest mission."
I didn't hear anything she said afterwards.
Dad was dead?
How could that happen?
"I understand." I said in a monotone voice. I was surprised my voice could even sound like that.
"Sweetie, do you wanna take the day off? I could tell Kakashi sen-" I cut her off.
"Its okay Mom. A ninja should continue on her duty and not show emotion. It's one of the many rules of the ninja."
"Alright." She agreed reluctantly.
"Stay safe!" She called out.
I stopped for just a miillisecond. That's what she said to Dad before he left for his mission.
The mission that he didn't come back from alive.
"You too." I replied.
I shut the door and took off into the forest.
